Have fun. That's a lovely photo by the way! I must get up to Toronto one day.

Bon voyage! I love Toronto so much; we'd drive there from Ann Arbor when I was an undergrad. Say hello for me.

Thanks for the farewells! A good time was had by all. (Especially my daughter Elizabeth who just loved Casa Loma - a castle plopped in the middle of Toronto.) Collin, yes, you must visit. Mary, if you loved Toronto you must see Montreal. All my life I have been witness to a rivalry of sorts between these two great Canadian cities. 25 years ago Toronto couldn't compete with Montreal (the unofficial party capital of Canada). I admit that even I was startled at the change in Toronto over the last two decades. The shift of popularity & socioeconomic importance of course was precipitated by a separatist government in Quebec and the inevitable migration of anglophones out of Quebec in the late seventies & eighties (after the Parti Quebecois won the provincial election in 1976). Many of them landed in Toronto!
